From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, There was a time that I was broke. No, broke is the wrong word; I was flat out-busted. I had two young kids, and a respectable little house here in town, but make no mistake, my bank account was registering in the double digit range most days. In fact, things got so…

Oldtimer

This should be a fun assignment. I’ve been tasked with outlining what my day would look like if I was Mayor of Boerne. I don’t think I’d ever really want to be the Mayor, because I could imagine that my head might explode, but I’ll play along. The following would be the basic breakdown of…
